(This page provides a start point and a touch point for ideas, actions, a way of thinking, and support for the protection and sustainment of our environment. You may hear the following terms in conjunction with protecting our environment: Green, Eco-Friendly, Environmentally Friendly, LEED-certified, and so on. Regardless of what you call it, the ultimate goal is to act reasonably and responsibly to effectively and consistently care for and protect our environment. The information provided on this page will evolve over time and is not designed to advocate a specific position, method, or group. The intent is to provide a resource page in order to begin a journey with the goal of protecting and sustaining our environment for future generations. Being a better steward of the environment could mean lower utility bills, lower payments at the gas pump, improved recreational opportunities, less/proper waste disposal, and increased recycling. Recommendations can be submitted through the "Contact Us" feature on this web site. Those suggestions that support learning and awareness will be posted.)
Three Recycling Containers Increase Capacity and Eliminate Sorting
Three 8 cubic yard recycling containers are in place at the Chase Street parking lot. These containers replaced the single, long 20 cubic yard container which had specified sections for designated recyclables. The single, long container required Waste Management to haul the container to its recycling facility and bring it back empty which did not allow residents to deposit recyclables while it was gone and increased the cost of recycling due to fuel and transportation costs. The 8 cubic yard recycling containers increase the capacity to 24 cubic yards and allow residents to deposit all recyclable material in the containers without separating the material which will be accomplished at the Waste Management recycling facility. A truck will now empty the containers on site once a week so residents will always be able to deposit their recyclables and the cost to recycle will be reduced. Recycling is mandated by State Law and the Town of Bowling Green is constantly searching for ways to reduce costs to its residents and comply with the law.
